Symposium: Politics of the Portrait / Photography as Activism
USF School of Music Conference Center

Join us for a lively afternoon discussion of political and contemporary aesthetic considerations raised by the exhibition Miki Kratsman: People I Met. USF faculty members will be moderated by USFCAM curator-at-large Christian Viveros-Fauné.

  • Dr. Ulluminair Salim: Professor Salim is a full-time faculty member in the Honors College and explores questions of whose lives matter, whose bodies count, and who decides, traversing the interstices between scientific progress, capitalism, and social responsibility.
  • Dr. Steven Roach: Associate Professor of International Politics in the Department of Government and International Affairs, Dr. Roach’s research interests lie in the areas of international human rights, the intersection of politics and international law, critical international relations theory and global governance.
  • Wendy Babcox: Associate Professor, Photography, Babcox works primarily in photography and video and has received two public art commissions. She is a founding member of the 6+ Collective. Her solo and collaborative projects have been exhibited and performed nationally and internationally.
  • Noelle Mason: Associate Professor, Foundations Studio: Concepts and Practices, Mason is a trans-media artist who manipulates appropriated images, objects and contexts to investigate and expose the subtle seductiveness of power facilitated by systems of visual control.
  • Dr. Benjamin Young: Dr. Young's current work investigates the dynamics of perception, emotion, desire and normative moral intuitions in relation to social and ecological systems. Ultimately, he aims to contribute to our understanding of human flourishing with regards to the person, community and environment.
  • Jason Lazarus: Assistant Professor Photography, Lazarus’s research asks how we may understand and utilize increasingly broad definitions of photography in an expanded field, utilizing not only the camera but found and appropriated images, text-as-image, live archives, and public submission repositories.
